Alice at the Christo salon in NYC - Updated - Great haircut!

I'm having a haircut with Alice today. Has anyone been to her before? I read the reviews - she sounds very good but I'm nervous. I can't afford to see Mark DiVicenzo anymore - his fee has gone up to $220!

Please respond if you've had your hair cut by Alice recently. Thanks!

ETA: I got a GREAT haircut from Alice. Very happy. Short (which I wanted) sexy, sassy.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

Great news CP! Is the Christo cutting technique like Ouidad's carve and slice? How much does Alice charge?
Awesome! What a great feeling!

You are beautiful!
Thanks, Gretchen! It's doing really well, even in the high dewpoints of NYC. I really needed this, since other areas of my life are not working so well right now. I sent Alice a thank you note card.

Thanks for responding.

CP your cut and stylist sound great! Do you need to use clips for root lift for styling like a Deva Cut or can you just wash gel, scrunch, diffuse and go. I imagine you can style it both ways.
Hi Curlswirl,

The cut was very expensive $155 (groan). But the owner of the boutique I work in raved about my curls! She just had a Brazilian done and I was wondering aloud what I'd look like with that. She said "oh no - don't ever do it - you look fabulous - like Claudette Colbert with your new haircut."

I don't have to use clips. Alice just did a little blow drying upside down. There are some excellent videos on Curlisto - Curlisto System - if you want to see how they use the duck bill clips. I don't follow their step by step technique at all. It's helpful to watch but I don't have time for all that Mostly, I just scrunch and go.

How are your curls doing these days? I wish I knew how to post pictures and hope to see some of yours.

CP your cut sounds amazing and it is less expensive than Mark D's cut. Do you use the same products as before or Curlisto products? My hair is doing pretty well but I always like to try a new hairstylist every now and then for a change.
